Key Fob question

I can't seem to program each key fob (RKE) to the memory settings. I've activated it in the EVIC and followed the instructions of pressing the seat memory button (1 or 2) then the lock button on the RKE within 5 seconds but no luck.
Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

Re: Key Fob question

There's two fobs, and each is linked to the number (1 or 2). You don't program the fobs, but do the buttons.

Re: Key Fob question

Well with my previous Jeep each key fob had a different color, black for memory 1 and gray for M2. With this new Jeep, both fobs are identical (no color difference or number) and instructions are given as to how to program each. It just hasn't worked for me.

Re: Key Fob question

Ah, didn't know they changed the fobs for that. Did you look through the User's Guide?

Re: Key Fob question

Press the S button between 1 & 2, the memory button you want to save and
then the lock button on the RKE.

Either the EVIC display or the radio display will state that the settings have
been saved.

At least that's the way it worked with mine.

Re: Key Fob question

I can't get this to work. This is the last thing that I haven't figured out.

I've tried the S button then 1 or 2 button then lock button on the RKE

I've tried it with the car running and just in accessory mode. Is there any I might be missing? Is it simply S button 1 button then lock on the RKE?

Also I was wondering at what point does the seat shift into the correct position for the specific RKE. When you get close enough for the door to unlock? or do you have to hit the unlock on the RKE (as you did on my 2002 jeep)?

Re: Key Fob question

Did you enable the "RKE Linked to Memory" setting in EVIC? If that's not
enabled then you always have to press the memory button on the drivers door
for the settings you want to recall.

If it is the settings should be applied when you unlock the door or start the vehicle
remotely.

Re: Key Fob question

Thanks for the reply. I did check the RKE Linked to Memory in the setup menu.

Does it have any sort of message indicating that the key fob has been linked to a seat setting when it works? Or is the only message the one you get when using the driver door buttons?

Re: Key Fob question

I thought there was a message, but I tested both of my remotes and there is no
message when I use them to unlock the doors. I'm probably doing something
wrong so I'll have to come up with a better test...

Re: Key Fob question

I started my jeep remotely and opened the driver's door and there was a brief pop-up on the radio indicating that saved memory settings for my remote were activated.
